Selling Things at School Answered

So my school is having a fair, where we can sell anything we want. Any ideas? It needs to be able to be sold from 5-10 dollars.

When I was younger, I use to sell candy. Mostly snickers, m&ms' just anything I knew for sure the cafeteria didn't have or anyone else was selling. I know it won't be 5-10 each but with enough buys you'll get there.

I also had a school market. We set up a selfie photoshoot. We also did a raffle with M&M's and sold ice-creams. This didn't take a lot of time and it did not have many costs but our profit was huge! Good luck

potpourri pouches at 2 dollars each, bookmarks made out of ribbon or lace with charms attached, friendship bracelets. Baked goods: pretzel rods dipped in chocolate and sprinkles(or crushed candy cane). Chocolate chip cookies, brownies, empanadas, Wish you much success!!

T shirts. You can buy packs of them for about a dollar a shirt. Make a design, print it out onto a transparency, cut it out, then use either spray paint or t shirt paint to paint each one.

I think those might be the least of your olfactory concerns.

I sold cotton candy - if you can get access to a machine without renting one at exorbitant cost go for it - I made over 2 thousand dollars for the chess club in a year (only way I could be allowed to make that much money was to make it for a club) - we had some fun gadgets for a 'chess' club :D

I used to sell pocket knives at school. But I think they frown on that these days.

One of by daughter's classmates was selling duct-tape things - wallets, roses, even a purse - to raise money for a charity. I don't know how successful it was, but *I* liked the idea (didn't buy anything though :-() There are a LOT of interesting wallet ideas here on instructables (it was a contest), and a fair number of duct-tape ideas...

we had a thing in our school called "market madness" where all the students and to manufacturer at least 25 items for only 3.00 dollars, and we sold them to see who could get the most profit. Ideas: huh, 5-10 bucks is a lot for something home made, how far away is it? Stuff for our fair was like 25 to 50 cents

really? We use dollars, even up to 20. I just need to make something to sell. This is my first time, so I'm not sure what people will like, not like. etc
